Make Some Time

Let me tell you why Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan are going to lose.  Ready?  It's because they are completely clueless as to how to communicate with the masses.  They claim to have all of these "plans" that are going to "save" the country, but they don't seem to be able to articulate them at all, even when asked about them!  How ridiculous is that?!  If you have a plan and you are unable to spell it out for people who are of the most simple of the simple minded, then you are going to have a hard time getting anyone to even think about listening to you, much less actually listening to you.

Below is a clip of Paul Ryan when he was being interviewed by Chris Wallace on Fox News.  You're going to have to try to ignore the fact that it really looks like he's wearing eye shadow.  I'm pretty sure that he's not (I'm certainly hoping that he's not), but that doesn't change what it looks like. The point here is that Chris Wallace wants specifics and Paul Ryan isn't able to give them to him.  Here's how the exchange went:  Chris Wallace, after listening to Ryan ramble on about broadening the tax base in vague manners, says to him "You haven't given me the math yet."  That seems like a reasonable thing to ask someone who is running for Vice President of the United States.  It seems like a reasonable thing to ask anyone who claims to have a solution for something.  "Hey, how does that work, exactly?"  You know what the answer to NOT give to that question is?  What Paul Ryan said.  He replied, "Yeah..well...I don't have the ti...It would take me too long to go through all of the math."  Good Lord.  What now? 

He doesn't have the time?  Hey, Paul Ryan!  I suggest you make the freaking time to explain to people that you're running on something besides "Just trust me.  I got this."  Remember Ross Perot and his little charts?  People ate that stuff up.  People loved his charts.  And he managed to simplify things so that the average moron could kind of get it.  Because that's who votes.  Morons.  You have to play to them at this point.  And if you're going to sit there and say that you don't have the time, I highly doubt that your fake marathon times and your likely fake body fat percentages are going to win anyone over.
